NFL Corrects Stat From Sunday’s Game Against Indianapolis

Published by Cory Hays on

During the game on Sunday, the Buccaneers Defense took down Colts QB Jacoby Brissett for a sack. The sack was credited to both William Gholston and Shaquil Barrett.

Upon further review, the NFL has awarded OLB Shaquil Barrett with a full sack. The sack puts Barrett at 15.5 sacks on the season, which is one behind Warren Sapp’s franchise record 16.5 sacks, and seven behind Michael Strahan’s NFL single season record of 22.5. Bucs have three games remaining.

Barrett will more than likely tie Sapp on Sunday against the Lions and potentially become the franchise single season sack leader in his first season with the Buccaneers.
